carbon fibres type HT

Carbon fibres type HT are carbon fibres with values of Young's modulus between 150 and 275 to 300 GPa. The term HT, referring to high tensile strength, was early applied because fibres of this type display the highest tensile strengths.
The disposition of boundaries between the fibre types is somewhat arbitrary. For carbon fibres type HT, the values of the strength-to-stiffness ratio are typically larger than 1.5 × 10 −2. The tensile strength of carbon fibres is flaw-controlled, however, and therefore the measured values increase strongly as the diameter of the filaments is decreased.
